Munna Bhai, MBBS

"Med School for Mobsters." ▲ ♪

Munna Bhai, MBBS makes me laugh. I first watched this Bollywood comedy at a friend's house; an Indian friend in med school whose parents are both doctors (MBBS is the Indian equivalent of MD). Despite the subtitles and the stiff dancing of muscle-bound Sanjay Dutt, the film is charming. In it, a mobster attempts to regain his father's honor by becoming a doctor instead of an underworld don. His attempts are unsuccessful. But he finds he can still be honorable, falls in love with a beautiful doctor and everybody loves him yadda yadda yadda happy ending.

*sniff* I love Bollywood.
